Do any of us know anything at all about action that comes from the silent mind?

Love, the silent mind, and action without idea are all very important issues that K spoke about. Whether you discover anything about them is up to you and your investigations.

To make any claims about knowing them is irrelevant. I don't make any such claims and if I did they would be irrelevant. To make any accusations about someone knowing or not knowing them is irrelevant. I don't make any such accusations and if I did they would be irrelevant.

These are vital matters that K taught. Investigating them is 100% on you.

We have been talking about "love in the K sense." I said that it could be argued that very few of us get this. Now when you ask, "Do any of us know anything at all about action that comes from the silent mind?" you are implying the same thing: that very few of us get it.

According to what K, himself, said toward the end of his life; nobody gets it.

Idiot?, my question asking if any of us knew anything about action that comes from the silent mind was an honest one and I wasn't implying that anyone knew or didn't know about this. It is interesting though, isn't it? I agree that this is something we have to explore for ourselves. I suppose becoming aware that our minds aren't often silent is a start. Is this a reasonable starting point?

K certainly said, "Be aware of what is." Didn't he? And if what is is a busy mind...

No ,k certainly said how to be aware without like or dislike or be aware without choosing.

LA is a cancer on the face of the earth. And what the hell does this have to do with anything that anyone posted? Are you off your meds again?

L.A. is a great big freeway

Put a hundred down and buy a car

In a week, maybe two, they'll make you a star

Weeks turn into years. How quick they pass

And all the stars that never were

Are parking cars and pumping gas

See how unaware you are . LA is consistent of 88 cities Which include? (Hollywood, Beverly Hills,and 86 beautiful cities) .
See how your mind deceives yourself and others.

Fame and fortune is a magnet

It can pull you far away from home

With a dream in your heart you're never alone

Dreams turn into dust and blow away

And there you are without a friend

You pack your car and ride away

And who is your friend!?
Speaking about somewhere that one has never been is the worse thing that one can do. It is called false advertisement. And you still think in term of becoming which has no use.
Anti west altitude will not get one anywhere except more hate and jealousy.

I think the friend was the dream, wasn't it? I imagine Burt Bacharach and Hal David have actually been in L.A. but they probably had more friends in San José. Not sure about Dionne Warwick.

Sean Hen is interpreting poetry - which is tantamount to treason! Blatant treachery towards the unknown!

And anyway, I disagree. I reckon that the Following of dreams is the abandoning of Love to start with.

PS. Sorry about the insults above - I'm just being silly.

Look, see, let go

Douglas, perhaps the dream wasn't the friend - it's not really clear, is it? Well done on getting the song!

This may be the first factual thing you have ever written on here. Congratulations.

The fact is you have no idea what anyone is talking about. Including yourself.

Look who is talking! You were never taught that you should not interrupt the grown ups!? I was answering Sean and all of a sudden jack starts to show off himself to himself! The rest know where he comes from. Anti-western attitude. Even against LA!

Ha, Ha. "Anti-western attitude"? What does that mean? You remind me so much of the retarded, pathological liar Trump. You get so angry you just say things that make no sense. Wipe the foam from your mouth.

Communists are anti- west and anti-people. Jack is anti-west and anti-people
so jack is a communist. Never trust communists. They are jealous and try to destroy the West . That is why they helped Trump to win the election and they are still doing it .

If that were true then Jack would support Trump. But he doesn't.
